Must Hear Artist Album: GRiZ – Chasing the Golden Hour Pt 1
All Good records kingpin GRiZ is at the top of his game right now and Chasing the Golden Hour proves it. Lots of collaborations and melodies with that GRiZ sax that just oozes summer, he has out done himself on this one.
In his own words; “I wanted to recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold. Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form. Enjoy the chilled out vibes :)”

Must Hear Artist Album: Mat Zo – Self Assemble
Here is an extremely solid sophomore release coming from the eclectic Mat Zo. He gives us an amazing Electro House track, one solid Trance blend and a handful of fresh glitchy breaks all tied together with some beautiful transition tracks as what he describes is a sound track for a movie from the future that hasn’t been created.
Sadly enough Mat says that this will be “his last send off” and will not be making anymore electronic tracks due to the EDM scene holding back his artistic creativity. Hard not to appreciate all the genre defining and breaking tracks he has given us over the years – wishing him the best on his next move.

I recently discovered this podcast and was blown away by the energy and feel of Sherry’s relentless blend of Techno and Trance. Dark, fast, epic, beautiful and moving this show doesn’t disappoint. It usually starts with trance and flows into some solid Techno towards the end.
Thanks for all the love and support! Going to do my best to keep finding and sharing music that matters despite my busy life.
